Pakistanâ€™s latest economic survey reports positive trends in population growth.
The report found that the population growth rate declined from 2.05% to 2.03% over the last year. Â Furthermore, the crude birth rate dropped from 2.75% to 2.72% and the total fertility rate from 3.5% to 3.4%.
The trends are exciting to the nation, whose high population growth is troublesome for a developing country.
High fertility rates are probably the result of poor contraceptive use among women and men.
The study found that less than 30% of married women use contraceptives.
Pakistan has the highest birth and total fertility rate among the developing countries of Asia. Â This growth will strain the economy of the nation and lead to a decrease in quality of life indicators for its citizen.
